        Hello Avneesh,

        If you are using the 'SQL Anywhere for SAP Business Intelligence' repository database (Sybase) for SAP BI, it is not supported on TrueSight Smart Reporting.

        TrueSight Smart Reporting only supports MS SQL Server and Oracle databases as repository databases.

        If you are using the Oracle database, please refer to this page:

        Thank you,
